My husband and I spent four nights at St Francis Resort on Stocking Island off Great Exuma. It turned out to be the perfect spot for us. If you want your own swimmable and nearly private beach (we saw 6 other people in four days on that beach) that goes on for about 5 miles, then this place is for you. All eight rooms at the resort face said beach, so the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep. The rooms are very clean and spacious with balcony, mini fridge, AC, nice bathrooms and daily maid service. The restaurant and bar are very good, with everything from cheeseburgers to lobster tails. Kista, Kiva, and the rest of the staff were very attentive and made sure we enjoyed every visit to the bar and dining area.You will be welcomed by the owners Gill and George along with their son Greg. Gill assisted us with booking a shark dive trip with Exuma Divers. Unlike many other places, there is no surcharge for booking trips through the resort. They will make suggestions based on your interests so you can make the most of your vacation. It's only a short boat ride across the bay (7minutes). George and Greg were very nice about giving us a lift when we needed it. We made good use of the kayaks and snorkel gear which are all included in the price of the room. You really do get the best of both worlds here. Glorious beach on one side, marina and bay with great snorkeling on the other. Please note: If you are looking for posh beach chairs, beachside cocktail service, and cable tv in your room, this is not the place for you. We didn't miss any of those things, and I doubt you will either. We will definitely be going back.
